comment Reason for loving/worshiping Jesus
Why was my perfectly constructive and on-topic comment removed for allegedly being "unconstructive"? Utter nonsense.

comment Non-Christian/secular translation of the Bible?
I wouldn't really call Asimov or Jefferson's works (Tolstoy undertook a similar project, btw) "translations" but rather "digests."

comment Why does the LDS church (Mormon) put so much more emphasis on the family than most other denominations do?
Out of curiosity, if "the LDS church also puts such a heavy emphasis on accepting people for who they are, and not who we think they should be," then how is baptism of the dead justified?

comment Reason for loving/worshiping Jesus
You are aware that not all Christians identify the Christ with Jesus personally and that therefore Jesus is not necessarily a particularly meaningful figure in all forms of Christianity, right? Perhaps you should be more specific in your question.

comment What's the main logical basis that is put forth by those Christians who don't believe in the existence of God?
Christianity is not a set of rituals, it is a way of life. If a person is living, or sincerely attempting to live, in emulation of the Christ, with universal brotherly love, he is living Christianity; whether or not he "practices" ritualistic "Christianity" is not really important to being Christian.

comment What is the biblical basis for the claim that abortion is immoral?
A born child also has its own DNA, but that does not confer upon it a right to literally eat the flesh off of its mother's bones. Yet that is essentially what a fetus is doing.

comment Are bad things in life Satan's doing or God testing/punishing me?
Seriously, whoever tagged this needs to understand that. Since I am the only one I know of who understands Christianity in this way, and since I have, at present, no external writings, I am my own reference for the teachings of the particular form of Christianity I espouse.I'm getting voted down either because people disagree with me or because they don't realize that I am my own source and so all possible sources are provided by the very fact of me posting here. Neither, of course, is acceptable.

Me. I'm one. I am my own reference for the particular form of Christianity I've developed. I've explained this to you several times already. I'm not convinced you understand this site all that well.

Speaking just for myself, of course, there are a couple of things to understand. First, Jesus was not the Christ but merely an imperfect manifestation of it. The Christ itself is an ideal, an example of the ideal life to which I strive. Second, I believe that the Christ is our savior, in that if we live by the Christ's example of universal brotherly love and compassion we will be able to avoid destroying ourselves.

Not at all. After all, it's Christianity, not Godism. The essence of Christianity is that the Christ is the savior of mankind. How exactly that salvation is accomplished varies. I hold that the Christ saved mankind by teaching us how to live among ourselves without destroying each other.

Where does it say this?

comment Is the God of Christianity a just God?
Not all Christians believe that. Many Christians--myself included--believe that belief in a god is in fact incompatible with Christianity. You should make sure to explain that your answer is given from a specific Christian perspective (an overwhelming majority perspective, no doubt, but definitely a universal one) and does not claim to speak for all of Christianity.
